A few weeks ago, I published an article about the stock performance of stocks with country club executive perks. I decided to check SEC filings again for just the last two days to see if any more stocks turned up which reported paying country club dues as executive perquisites.
Just in the last two days, I found a lot of them, many of which are banks. Here they are:
PSB Holdings Inc. (NASDAQ:PSBH) [they call them social clubs]
Bank of Commerce Holdings (NASDAQ:BOCH)
Home Bancshares, Inc. (NASDAQ:HOMB) [also provide gas for personal cars]
Tupperware Brands Corporation (NYSE:TUP) [also pay for financial & tax planning]
Mercantile Bank Corp. (NASDAQ:MBWM)
FreightCar America Inc. (NASDAQ:RAIL)
Renasant Corp. (NASDAQ:RNST)
Citizens Financial Services Inc. (OTCPK:CZFS)
I have come to the conclusion that country club dues perks are not a red flag; it is extremely commonplace. And as I have mentioned in a previous post, I don't see anything wrong with some of these unusual executive perks as long as both the company and the stock perform extremely well [I'm not necessarily referring to the above].. whatever it takes to retain and attract top executives.
